HI Mark. The roan bull is called Alston Gordon Highlander. Sired by Alton Polar Star, that is the Hector's bull sire. Polar Star is a very popular bull in Argentina today, many sons and daughters are show winners there. Polar Star is sired by Mearns Topador, also a Palermo champion very popular. Topador is a medium to small framed red bull, very useful to be mated with big narrow american cows. Used him on this cattle shaped. Polar Star have on her pedigree Sebant Ttleist (by Sutherland Titleist), Inca Sophy Pilot Tribune (by Tribune 82), Maria Lucia Jumbo 8192 (by Anwick Karl a Lincoln Red bull from 70's), Jumbo was a widely used bull in Argentina too. I own two sons and two daughters him. Also Forthill Fausto, a TNT Fastrak son out a strongly Lincoln Red genetics on dam side.
Gordon Highlander is a linebreeding, as the dam side is by Topador, Fausto and Tribune. The inbreeding rate is 15.6%
Polar Star show a IR of 1.37%, and Topador 0.39%.
In Argentina stock show, is very commom the show animals to be inbred to previous years champions.
I saw some very good calves sired by Gordon Highlander, he adds muscle and long loins. Some deep in ribs. Like him. This year I have a heifer calf by him. The heifer is sired by Giordon Highlander out of a cow by Kinnaber Leader 9th x Mandalong Super Flag x HS Instant Enticer.

I want to thank XBAR for asking the most pertinent question on this thread Do any of these genetics still exist?  Yes.  I know of several members of the Heritage Shorthorn Society who have these genetics, some of whom have posted on this thread.  The one I want to highlight is Wally Klose (Diamond K Shorthorns-Twin Bridges, Montana) who raises Heritage Influenced Shorthorns and owns a bull, Harvey Fulton 32A (ASA #4206631), who is the spitting image of Weston Romeo except he is bigger, thicker and still alive.  I have seen Harvey at different times of the year and he stays in amazing condition no matter what he has available to eat.  If you look closely at the Harvey pictures I have included you will see he is grazing on some of Wallys finest pasture.   No Iowa corn for Harvey.  I am sure many of you know Wally and realize he runs a no frills operation.  They either make it or they are on a one way trip to town.  Harvey is sired by Kenmar President 26A and includes Kenmar Ransom 32Z, Pleasant dawn Seal 2nd, and HHFS Dream Weaver on his maternal side.  Wallys market has always been the commercial cattlemen and he has made a living selling Shorthorns to that market for approximately 60 years.  Too bad there are not many Shorthorn breeders left that have his MO (modus operandi for Dragnet fans).
Kenmar President 26A semen is now available.  Check out https://www.facebook.com/Sherbeck-Farms-104143464975511

I did not say Romeo, "Too Tall", Fortune, or any other Weston bull was a belt buckle creature.  I just pointed out that the ancestry of many of those animals contained almost completely very small framed animals.  You would be hard pressed to find a photo of one that was not.  We used a son of Weston Goliath for several years, I saw Fillet, White Count, Independence, and many other Weston bred cattle.  They were not belt buckle cattle.  There's no arguing the fact that their ancestors were.  The first champion bulls at the Iowa State Fair that I remember were WL Golden Glory, Royal Tartan King, and PF Nugget in the early 60's.  By today's standards they were probably 3 frame scores.
 Virtually no one started talking about increased growth rate and frame size for several years and Leader 21, even noted as an outlier by his owner, came along at the right time.
I won't argue with anything you said.  I had a son of Fortune that was the best of the 4 Shorthorn bulls I had from Doc, today I would say he was a little too big.  He weighed 2300 and he stood much taller than he needed.  But sired consistent offspring.
